Examining Values, Use, and Role in Evaluation: Prospects for a Broadened View
Boulay, David A.; Han, Heeyoung
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
This article reviews evaluation studies published in the HRD (human resource development) field. The authors further discuss general evaluation theories in terms of value, use, and evaluator role. The comparison of this literature suggests that evaluation in HRD has been limited by narrow perspectives. The authors attribute this narrow notion of evaluation to a lack of theoretical consideration of the roles, value, and use of evaluation. This analysis considers a broader view for evaluation in the field. (Contains 1 table.)
